Cream blushes are amazing for warm weather, which is all year here in Florida, because they will stick to your skin and act as stain, or a base for other blushes. Powder blushes can look cakey and unnatural in hot weather, but cream blushes blend into the skin much nicer.
This is the first cream blush I have found that really impresses me. First off, I am not a huge blush wearer, but when I do wear blush I want it to look great. And for $8, Maybelline's Dream Bouncy Blush delivers.
I picked up color 15 Rose Petal, which is a muted coral pink shade with subtle shimmer. The shimmer is almost undetectable on the cheeks, but it give the skin a healthy glow. I absolutely love this color, it is perfect for everyday wear.
This blush claims to feel light weight like a powder, yet melt into the skin like a cream. Which is completely true.
The consistency of this blush is also like a really pliable play dough. To apply it I tap my pointer finger and middle finer into the blush to pick up product, and use those definers to gently blend it on my cheeks. Another way I like to apply it is with the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Contour brush.
After I apply this blush, I usually set it with another blush, or translucent powder because I have oily skin and live in hot and humid Florida.

This product has good pigmentation, it is not completely opaque when applied to the cheeks, but I love that. Like I said earlier, I am not a big blush wearer, so the more sheer a blush, the better. This blush can also be built up to be very opaque.
I hope you pick up one of these Bouncy blushes, they are incredible! I can't wait to get more colors!!
